Market launch "SMARTACUS" - Smart Home and Energy IoT for Switzerland
The latest company that went on track with ROCKETHOME is the Swiss utility Energie 360° based in Zurich. It now offers Smartacus Smart Home - for an intelligent home with an energy focus.
The joint product is not only a simple smart home solution. Its intelligent energy management features makes the home both smart and environmentally friendly. Smartacus’ advantages include a simple installation, continuous further product development, low cost and compatibility with devices from numerous manufacturers.
A special feature of Smartacus is its Energy IoT approach, which is specifically targeting prosumers. Due to the smart connection of, for example, solar systems or heat pumps and to the self-consumption optimization, all energy flows can be adapted appropriately to the customer behavior. This promotes awareness of energy saving while saving money.
With Smartacus it is possible to measure the power consumption of individual devices or your entire home in real time. In addition, energy guzzlers and the resulting costs can be easily identified. By adjusting consumption to the solar power production, the self-consumption is optimized. For example, the hot water boiler can be switched on as soon as more electricity is produced than is actually required. The connection of electric vehicles, storage, heat pumps and many other devices round off the Smartacus range of devices.
The product offer is also characterized by innovative online marketing functions: In addition to extensive social media activities, an online consultation is also offered via chat. A high-quality blog informs the customers comprehensively about the service spectrum and enables a modern Content-Marketing across all channels.
The Energie 360° is a member of the Energy IoT Alliance of leading energy suppliers from Europe. Other partners of this multinational cooperation are Verbund AG and Salzburg AG from Austria. ROCKETHOME is technology partner of the Energy IoT Alliance.
